New Love, New Blackberry Cobbler Recipe & New Knits!

  Crazy bird was deemed crazy by the bird people also!I’m not sure what they will do with her as she got out of their cages also.

But, Little Bird has a  new love.

Pink Longies & Snow 004This ones a sweetie, they get along great and I think they will become a pair not just cage mates 

We celebrated Valentines a day early by going out to supper and  then to see the  5 Browns in concert.  Siblings, all classical pianists that are currently touring the US. & we were able to see them at the Ogle Center at IUS.  Steinway hauls and sets up the the 5 Steinway piano’s where ever they go.  It was magic!  If you have the opportunity to to see them don’t even think about it go!

I broke out the guarded Blackberries to make a Valentine cobbler for Mr.. Fix-it.

Took less than 15 minutes to put together

custom 003

1/2 c. butter
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
2/3 c. milk
1 (16 oz.) pkg. frozen blackberries, thawed  (I used 3 cups fresh  frozen )

Melt butter in a 2 quart casserole. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk in a small mixing bowl, mix well.

Pour mixture over melted butter, do not stir. Spoon blackberries over batter; do not stir.

Bake at 350°F. for 45 minutes or until golden

A scoop (or 2) of ice cream & it’s Pan lickin good!

And of course there has been some knitting…

A pair of large Longies, I LOVE this Blue Marl, super soft and snuggly!

We still are buried in snow, nothings melted and I’m avoiding going out as much as I can….It’s a good enough excuse to make chocolate chip cookies!
